When I saw this Alice and Olivia sweater it made me scream with joy!! It reminded me of the “Karlito”…. the hottest Fall/Winter 2014 accessory on the planet! Let me explain…. The Karlto is part of the Fendi Bag Bug collection…. those hairy little iconic key chains you have seen hanging from the Über fashion-istsa’s purses around town. The Karlito plays homage to designer and creator Karl Lagerfeld and has a wait list as long as Manhattan… and at 1685.00 the price is rather iconic also! 


On to the outfit…. Leather for Summer! With summer coming to a close… and leather still going strong into Fall…. this is a great skirt to own! I purchased this tight pleated leather mini skirt at Intermix for 550.00… and just saw online that it can be owned for 350.00…. www.intermixonline.com. It’s a great carry over piece… great to wear now… and for fall. Add in the Alice and Olivia “Karlito” inspired sweater… and I am loving the fact that I brought this outfit with me while I play DownUnder! I am currently in Australia at the Great Barrier Reef where it was 85 degrees last week…. not this week! It’s cold and raining and this outfit is the only thing warm I have to wear!! Leather for Summer….. and Winter DownUnder!!
